AUTO JANSZ, ANDREA JUNE, and KATE REID
Auto Jansz' songs and style have turned many heads in the Canadian roots community. As a member of the popular roots band, Barley Wik, she won Album of the Year at the 2004 Vancouver Island Music Awards, and since then, Auto has come into her own with solo recordings and performances that are making Canadian roots fans sit up and listen.
Auto's songs "have all the classic virtues of roots music while sounds fresh and contemporary, never lapsing into stolid folk puritanism." - Randy Gelling, Station manager, CFUV 101.9 FM
"A wonderful blend of roots, folk, and heartfelt lyrics. . . . when first hearing [Auto Jansz'] new EP, I am immediately reminded and proud of great Canadian artists, and Auto has joined them." - Jason Valleau, Artistic Director, Mountain View Music Festival http://www.autojansz.com
Andrea June graduated from the Canadian College of the Performing Arts and briefly attended McGill University’s opera program. Since then, she has explored the vocal territory of jazz and pop. As a songwriter, she weaves influences from Beethoven to Bartok with the comforting familiarity of roots music to create a sound that is both soothing and unexpected. In 2010, her song, “The Tide,” was shortlisted for the Island Singer-Songwriter contest.
Andrea June is "a wonderful singer and a talented multi-instrumentalist who brings fire to the stage." - Jennifer Louise Taylor, Musician

Together, they create an energized sound, playing to audiences from Music on the Mountain Festival to Victoria Folk Music Society.
